I had my first Fancy Folds class on the weekend and it went really well! My five attendees made four fancy fold cards using Designer Series Paper they’d chosen themselves, It was really wonderful to see how the fancy fold cards looked when created with different papers. I wish I’d taken photos of the finished products, but of course I forgot! I can show you the sample cards that I made, though.

This is the Bendy card, which I made using the Come Sail Away suite. The Bendy card is both easier and more challenging than I predicted – it’s part card, part piece-of-art! It sure looks cool once it’s completed, especially when it’s decorated with co-ordinating sentiments, images, and embellishments. And yes, it all folds flat to fit in an envelope for mailing!

The Twist and Pop card has been one of my favourite fancy folds for a long time, and I loved teaching it to a new group of crafters yesterday. You can decorate these panels with anything you like – letters, images, sentiments, or even leave them as they are to show off the beautiful Designer Series Paper.

It’s easier than you might think to create this fun and surprising pop-up card. I used the Daisy Lane bundle and faceted gems to make this one; the stamps on the sides of the card are from Beauty Abounds.

And finally, the waterfall card. I couldn’t resist decorating this one with the fun crafting sentiments from It Starts With Art and Crafting Forever stamp sets!

If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Fancy Folds class last weekend, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos of each step, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

I learned how to make this lovely card at a recent demonstrator meeting, where my friend Carolyn encouraged us to “let the DSP do the talking” for this simple yet striking design. The only hard part about this project is figuring out which Designer Series Paper to use; Carolyn used Perennial Essence for her project, and I’ve chosen Bird Ballad.

(Note: If you prefer video tutorials, click here! If you prefer written tutorials, read on!)

Cardstock: 5-1/2 x 7-1/4″; score at 3″
DSP: 2-3/8 x 4-7/8″
White frame for DSP: 2-3/4 x 5-1/4″

White insert for inside card: 4 x 5-1/4″; stamp a simple design on the right side of this piece. It will be visible whether the card is open or closed!

The finishing touch is to add a stamped sentiment on the front panel. I chose one from the Free as a Bird stamp set, and used the 2″ Circle punch to cut it out, adding a 2-1/4″ circle punched from the same colour as my cardstock base to frame it.
